I finished this midnight blue skirt a long time ago and has been wearing it for several occasions now. I just can’t help it, I’m in looove with the colour. I can wear it with any basics and the outfit would just turn out to be fabulous.
Don’t you just adore it???

As I told you on my last post, I have been busy with a lot of sewing (and beading.) I’m doing some prototypes for an accessories line that I’m planning to launch sometime soon. *crosses fingers* My sewing machine is not working at the moment so everything is hand sewn. I swear, the beading will be death of me.
Playing around with grey. I think it’s starting to become my fave color!
So Sorry for the hem fail! Shiny fabrics are really hard to work with, but it’s really purdy! Maybe with a few more trials, I can make a better hem… one that is not noticeable even up close. *gasp*
Close up of the beading. I nearly went blind. Hahahaha!
More pictures to come as I’m really happy with my recent works so I’m showing them off! Plus, this is my blog and I can do what I can. Ha!

When I was a kid I remember playing with my bedsheets, pretending it was a gown and I’m on my way to a party. A few years after, I realised, I do need gowns to go to some parties. The problem is, I don’t really want to spend so much on something that I would probably wear only once in my life. (Imagine wearing the same gown over and over again *gasp*) So I decided to make a DIY gown that wouldn’t cost me much money and time to make. And when the party is done, I could use it for something else. Believe me or not, I really did this gown for only ten minutes… or a little under that.
What you need:
The skirt and bolero is totally optional, but I suggest you to really have something under this DIY gown to prevent any unwanted exposure.
Yes, you only need one (1) safety pin. This is used on the silk around the chest area just to fit it into place. Then I put on the belt and do random rouching on the top part of the gown. Sorry, I’m not really good with explaining how things are done, so maybe these pictures will help.
Too lazy to iron the cloth! Haha!
For those who are wondering if this gown can hold up for several hours, I believe it can! I was wearing this gown for a couple of minutes inside my room while running and posing and chasing my dog because it keeps on chasing the bottom part of the gown.
